Dr Francisco Trujillo is a senior lecturer at the school of Chemical Engineering. He has a wide experience in designing, developing and modelling complex multiphysics system including food processing, ultrasonic processing, heat and mass transfer, multiphase hydrodynamic systems, transport of light and radiation, membranes, photocatalysis, chemical reactions, and water detoxification. In the field of ultrasonics Dr Trujillo has worked on modelling ultrasonic operations of importance for the food processing industry such as modelling the acoustic streaming generated by low-frequency-high-power horn sonoreactors. Currently Dr Trujillo is working on achieving separation of particles and liquid droplets within emulsions via high frequency ultrasound, which can find several applications of importance for food, biological, pharmaceutical, chemical and petrochemical industries.
